She recalled the tang in throat when her head bounced off. She was accustomed to familiar, secure. This moment appeared gluey, sluggish.

She tried capturing her face, retrieved chiseled lines that made her sad, so did her olive hands, ragged fingernails, crinkles on corners of eyes and news that life would go on and on.

the news tht life would go on and on .... made her sad - the punch line for me in this piece and the one that justifies the title ...

but then the fact remains tht life does go on .. and on .. and on ... and then there are choices and there are options .. and then too life goes on .... wht say :)

viscous and vicious it seemed to me reading this...

The shore looks distant but one day the ship will dock, so it is fated..

sailing the ocean of life can lead to some interesting times & perhaps one day you will change your outlook and then life will seem so short and fleeting..

The secret is to discover a passion.. The tides of time will take care of the rest....

Alok.. true.. if there are no choices/options.. it still would go on and on.. btw.. when I wrote it first, it had one more 'and on'.. it was erased due to words constraint. Thanks for your comment.

You did a good job! 'certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever will be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.' This is one moment like that... Congrats. kunjubi
